I don't think that the number of files is a problem since the base system
is in a tar.gz archive AFAIK.

Otherwise for the internationalization you only need setlocale and the
associated constants :

(from POSIX.pm)

                LC_TIME NULL localeconv setlocale)],

setlocale does not have his own .al file ...

[ nothing to do with POSIX.pm ]

Otherwise there are two more bugs I corrected but you lost when merging
(it's my fault I should have more documented what i've done) :

Both perl postinsts have a bad update-alternatives with
/usr/man/perl-=version=.1p.gz instead of /usr/man/MAN1/perl-=version=.1p.gz :

update-alternatives --install /usr/man/man1/perl.1p.gz perl.1p.gz 
/usr/man/perl-=version=.1p.gz =alt-num=

And also for the call to Configure in the rules files I changed
-D startperl='#!/usr/bin/perl$(version)'
-D startperl='#!/usr/bin/perl-$(version)' 

which works better since there is no /usr/bin/perl5.00X :)
